Spawning stock not only depends on the numbers of reproductive adults but also on overall egg production and opportunities for eggs and sperm to meet. Across the wide range of exploited species, the number of eggs produced by females (fecundity) each year is highly variable both over time and also according to female size, with larger females having exponentially higher fecundity than smaller ones of their species.
